The partnership includes from Iglesia Christiana Menonita de Colombia  (Colombian Mennonite Church), Central Plains Conference of Mennonite Church USA, and Mennonite Mission Network.

For four days partner representatives visited with congregations in Quito and Riobamba, Ecuador. Then, along with representatives of the Ecuador churches, they flew to Bogotá for a week of fellowship, learning and partnership meetings.

The conference in Ecuador has 3 congregations and 70 members. They have initiated the process of becoming associate members of Mennonite World Conference.
